If you’ve encountered phrases like mobile broadband, mobile modems, and mobile broadband dongles, then you’ve probably caught tidbits of one of the newest members in the UK telecom markets today. All over the country people are turning to what is known as a dongle, a portable USB device which is plugged in to the laptop and that provides internet access wherever and whenever the user wishes.
This piece of technology is especially suitable for laptop users, travelers, and executives who are often moving from one place to another and still require internet access for business purposes. With dongles, people are able to download as much as 3 GB of data and can still communicate no matter where they are located. It is also a lot cheaper and more convenient than LAN technology, making it a possible alternative to expensive internet services.
